These are of the recently renovated Commerce Tower in downtown KC. Does my heart good to see a stately old building given a renewed lease on life. Design and construction by Ryan Companies.
The Big Chief notebook that millions of school kids have scribbled in over the decades were made in this building in St. Joseph, MO. The building has since been restored and converted to apartments by the Foutch Brothers and is now know as Mitchell Park Plaza. It does my heart good to see such a beautiful old building given a new life; too many like it have been leveled for parking.
